If they are as bad as that on the first tourney of the year, what is it going to be like next month for the last tourney as they will no doubt get worse. Already expecting the worst this weekend coming. helpless

I can relate to the frustrations as I am now asthmatic following Pet Bay counties and to be honest I make reception aware of this on arrival and they are very pleasant and helpful.

I've stayed in vans up there of a quality I'd take my wife and kids to.

I've also been allocated units I quite literally would not ask my DUG to sleep in & twice I've refused to sleep in them and booked into Hotels.

The concerning thing is they don't 'seem' to be getting better - there is no investment in those high up low use units. That they seem comfortable shafting people and expect them to sleep there is pretty shocking. There is cleary visible DAMP on the bed clothes and pillows - that cant be healthy!!!

I know LOTS of people who no longer do Supers just because of the state of the vans.

Ross, its a tough situation with so few alternatives available, but is there any pressure at all we can bring to bear, in regard to the worst of the vans???

I agree with limited venues etc and how difficult it must be.
given the amount of revenue PB make from our 4 weekends we deserve far better treatment than 2nd might even say 5th class accomodation.
I dont have the exact answers, possilby a hall we could put tables into then do some sort of deal with premiere inn n travel lodges ???.
these could be booked and agree by tournament committee a year in advance.
just a thought.
Or force PB to have enough 1st class accomodation for players and supporters alike.

Actually 8 weekends of supers
Then 5 man
Might also be 1 more

So talking about 9/10 weekends of the year the spa hires out pettycur.

1 of the Edinburgh guys put a review on tripadvisor and got a 1 year ban by the spa (although the said it was pettycur)

I had the same van at 15s and 11s last year and had no hot water at both events

All I got was moaned at from Ross for not following g protocol for complaining to reception at the 15s then when I complained to Ross at the 11s got told what do I expect him to do

After Edinburgh getting shafted for a £230.00 bill for damage to a kickboard at last years 11s if there is anything wrong with my van this year then the organisers will be getting handed a Bill

To follow up from my post regarding the bill

Edinburgh asked to see how pettycur bay came to a cost of £230.00 for damage to a van after only receiving the invoice 6 months after the event and were told by the exec tough luck pay the bill or face suspension from the supers and as they paid the bill without asking any questions there was nothing would be done about it
